Demo riding events near you


Much like daffodils, boxing hares and swooping swallows, motorcycle test ride days are a sure sign that Spring is finally here. After a long winter, these events are the perfect opportunity to experience the latest 2023 machines from a number of manufacturers. Here are some events that might be of interest to you…


Triumph demo ride events

Triumph’s test ride fleet will be visiting dealers around the country, giving you a chance to sample the latest from the British manufacturer.

You will be able to pick your favourite dealer or the date that suits you, and then select one of six sessions available that day, and chose from a list of motorcycles provided.

Dates range from mid-March to end of July, with venues from Dorset to Aberdeen.
